Shakopee, MN (PRWEB) January 19, 2015
Betaseed, Inc. announced today that they will be featured in an upcoming episode of American Farmer, airing 2nd Quarter on RFD-TV.
Over the last few years, Betaseed has conducted research and introduced beets to dairy producers in select markets across the US. Betaseed’s comprehensive breeding program has successfully developed and introduced hybrids for dairy cattle known as Feed Beets™.
American Farmer will focus on Feed Beets™, a product by Betaseed that when included in the ration, can increase the nutritional value of other forages, such as silage, dry hay, almond hulls, grass hay and others when used as a supplement.
“This is an exciting opportunity to be able to provide information to producers about adding Feed Beets into the ration,” said Duane Bernhardson, Business Development Manager for Betaseed. “We hope to help people understand the value of how Feed Beets fit into rations, the value beets can bring into an operation as a crop rotation alternative, and by offering a feed cost savings. Combine this with a feed source that is locally produced and dairy professionals quickly realize the significant contribution beets make to their operations.”
“Betaseed is the sugarbeet seed industry’s leading research and breeding organization devoted entirely to developing high performing, multiple disease tolerant sugarbeet seed varieties,” said Kelly Fussell, producer for American Farmer. “We look forward to educating the Ag industry on the amazing services they provide.”
